Home of the brave
Spaceport America welcomes the brave and pioneering new breed of commercial space entrepreneur. Our brand new FAA-licensed horizontal and vertical launch areas are beckoning bold space innovators from around the world.
Land of the free
With a secure campus of 18,000 acres set in the beautiful, sparsely populated, and high-elevation desert of southern New Mexico, 340+ days of sunshine, and 6,000 square miles of protected airspace – our tenants are free to dream, engineer, manufacture, test and launch – and free from prying eyes, bureaucratic red tape, and bad weather. Our North and East campuses are now open and ready for both build-to-suit tenancy and ad-hoc flight test campaigns.
First Flight First Sight
Your first flight and optical tracking are on us!
Spaceport America will waive the user fee for the first launch of a new customer’s flight campaign coupled with MARS Scientific for telescopic imaging and optical tracking at nominal cost.
Design your own spaceport at Spaceport America.
Cutting-edge infrastructure and wide-open land are available to suit your purpose, leveraging brand new FAA-licensed horizontal and vertical launch areas. Greenfield development sites cover our 18,000 acres, unencumbered by aging facilities or environmental liability.
Receive the support you need – and only what you need.
Out-dated policies don’t dictate your requirements – you do. Our capable in-house teams and our partnerships with U.S. Army White Sands Missile Range and others enable us to meet unique demands and source equipment, materials and capabilities on an á la carte basis.
Enjoy the value of the ‘middle of nowhere’.
Minimize public exposure and industrial espionage thanks to the total isolation of our remote locale. Conduct your operations safely and securely, and release information on your terms – or not at all.
Rapid, Reusable Recovery
Recover your assets via ATV instead of submersible.
Land-based flight-testing efficiently reduces risk of total vehicle loss and shortens reflight cycles. Imagine a launch, recovery, refuel and relaunch within hours, instead of weeks or months.
Maximize the benefits of living and working in New Mexico.
Spaceport America can provide connections to local real estate or financing, assist with navigating the process for various state incentives, and facilitate relocation for staff and families.
Afford more, fly more.
We offer affordable leases and reasonable user-fees whether you are the DIY type or prefer our full suite of operational support. Spaceport America is part of the solution for low-cost access to space.
New Mexico is All In
Rely on full support of our elected officials.
Numerous tax incentives and favorable legislation make our state highly competitive. Our Governor, state legislature and congressional delegation remain fully committed to ensuring the commercial space industry thrives in the Land of Enchantment.
